Women in IT ( http://www.kvinnor.it ) is a non-profit, independent group that is active in bringing women together in face to face events. This group aims to be a safe, open and inclusive environment for every woman working, studying or interested in IT. Being part of Women in IT should feel like being part of a family where asking questions, sharing stories and learning from each other is encouraged when we meet.
Women in IT will continue to be the natural meeting place for women in this industry to empower each other and also together find a way to inspire younger girls to pursue a career within IT.
How it all began Women in IT is the result of a female software engineer, Samaneh, that wanted to connect with other women within IT. It all started with weekly female developer lunches at Lindholmen with some colleagues and friends. The lunches repeated for more than a year and the number of participants grew. It was obvious that there was a need for a community not connected to a single company. However there are many different companies that has supported the group during this journey.
As a minority both due to the male dominated industry but also having Sweden as her second and current home since 2008, it also felt important for Samaneh to highlight the power and importance of diversity within this industry.
